We are proud of our agency culture, which since our founding, has been built on the principles of diversity and inclusion. In practice, this means we ensure meaningful representation in our talent across all genders, races, and ethnicities at every level. We stand by equality for all, and we are against racism and hatred toward any individual or community. Diversity of thought is welcome here, and we are proud to be a true reflection of where we live.
As part of our commitment to society, our people and the environment, Quigley-Simpson completes a thorough assessment of our business sustainability practices every year through EcoVadis, the global standard for business sustainability ratings.

As a woman-owned business, it’s in our DNA to prioritize diversity and inclusion, both in the office and on the set. We’re proud of the effort we’ve always made to push for representation in the productions we manage on behalf of our clients—both in front of and behind the camera.
We are proud of the good we do for our community. Our employees are encouraged to participate in various charitable endeavors that impact our community—and we support them in doing so by sponsoring and facilitating initiatives that impact people, animals and the environment.
Together, we support the fight to end women’s cancers, provide scholarships that help support women in the arts, and supply much-needed comfort and cheer to our furry friends, with annual animal shelter drives and contributions to wildlife welfare organizations.

We believe it’s an important step in opening the door to advertising a bit wider.
We also provide valuable pro bono marketing support to nonprofits that service some of California’s most vulnerable environments and populations, such as the Los Angeles Fire Department and the California Wildlife Center.
